Hello and Welcome!

Please understand that this website is not affiliated with the Prince Matchabelli Company any way, it is only a reference page for collectors and those who have enjoyed the classic fragrances of days gone by.

The main objective of this website is to chronicle the history of the Prince Matchabelli fragrances and showcase the bottles and advertising used throughout the years.

However, one of the other goals of this website is to show the present owners of the Prince Matchabelli perfume company how much we miss the discontinued classics and hopefully, if they see that there is enough interest and demand, they will bring back these fragrances!

Please leave a comment below (for example: of why you liked the fragrance, describe the scent, time period or age you wore it, who gave it to you or what occasion, any specific memories, what it reminded you of, maybe a relative wore it, or you remembered seeing the bottle on their vanity table), who knows, perhaps someone from the current Prince Matchabelli brand might see it.

Also, this website is a labor of love, it is a work in progress and is always being updated with new information as I can find it, so check back often!

Prince Matchabelli Makes a Film c1930

Here are some images taken from a "commercial" to be played during movie intermissions or publicity photos for Prince Matchabelli in 1930. These are various scenes of Matchabelli recommending perfumes to two women (multiple takes).

I am going to assume that these are studio shots with the shelving and table set up to simulate his shop, complete with his perfume bottles and individual essence bottles used in making the personalized perfumes in the background.





here is a take of a woman sampling the perfumes:
